My wife and I ate here under the recommendation of a friend who said chef Tino was one of the best chef's in Puerto Rico. He was supposed to have a cooking show on the food network, like the Puerto Rican Emeril. I have eaten at Emeril's in New Orleans, this is not Emeril's. First, it is loud. It was our table and the table next to us who were a drunk couple with about a 3 year old boy that they kept screaming at and didn't order him any food. In fact they didn't even feed him off their own plates. Disgusting parents. Any way, the music is so loud you can not hear anything else, club music too. It is dark to the point of straining your eyes when reading the menu. It is trying too hard to be 1990's trendy. The beer list is impressive, but they only have two of them. You can see them cook, but I think they just use a microwave because I never saw them cook anything. I saw them stand around and talk then just magically our food would appear. The waitress was great though, which is the reason for the 2 instead of 0. She actually was surprised when my wife said something tasted good (the tostones). The food was not good, lamb was awful, whatever unmemorable thing my wife ordered was not good. I have a feeling this place will not be open on our next visit. For the price, I would rather go to McDonalds 100 times.
